CLASS HISTORY 

The Senior Class of 19*+8 began Its history in Sep- 
tember, 1936. Three of the members of the class have 
completed their entire twelve years in Lucama School. 
The rest of the seniors came to this school either in 
the grades or in high school. Our first grade teachers 
were Miss Grace Merritt and Miss Elizabeth Bass. 

In the eighth grade the Lucama students were join- 
ed by a group of students from St. Mary's School. Be- 
sides adding to the enrollment of the class, they also 
added to the intelligence of the class. Friendships 
were formed; many have grown and lasted throughout our 
years In high school. 

We entered high school in 19^ with an enrollment 
of 31 • We were very much excited and conscious of the 
fact that we were at last in high school. We had three 
homeroom teachers during the year. They were: Miss 
Grace Lucas, Miss Charlotte Gray, and Miss Rebecca 
Pridgen. Confused? I'll say we were. Mr. H. B. Mayo 
was our principal. 

During our sophomore and junior years Mr. T.O.Gen- 
try was our principal. Miss Bunice Adams was our soph- 
omore sponsor and Miss Katharine Kennerly was our junior 
sponsor. In the beginning of our junior year we conduc- 
ted a magazine campaign. The money we made aided us 
greatly when the time came for us to give the seniors a 
banquet. Our play "Grandad Steps Out" was a success for 
our class. Miss Kennerly was director of the play. We 
gave our banquet in the school auditorium and had a lot 
of fun preparing for it. The Lucama Beta Club was reor- 
ganized in February, 19*+7, and four of our class members 
qualified for membership. Those four were: Eva Kate 
Capps, Frances Barnes, Dolores Kirby, and Gene Lamm. 

Our senior year has really been a busy one. Mrs. 
Paul Davis was our senior sponsor. One of our boys did 
play basketball and several played on the baseball team. 
We sold advertisements for our senior play programs. That 
was the first time a class had done that but it proved 
to be a success. The play, "When a Woman Decides", was 
enjoyed by a large crowd or people. Our principal, Mr. 
Jack P. Humphrey, was the director. We are grateful to 
him for his patience while teaching us to drive the new 
Chevrolet the county gave us. We enjoyed the nice ban- 
quet given us by the juniors in the Briggs Hotel in Wil- 
son. Fourteen of the class members spent the first week 
end in May in Beaufort. Mr. Humphrey accompanied us on 
the trip. We visited many interesting places and had a 
wonderful time. Our graduating class consisted of twenty 
one seniors. We also had two post-graduates with us this 
year who took commercial courses. 

We are grateful to our parents for the educational 
opportunities they have given us. We wish to express our 
thanks to all of our teachers for the patience and con- 
sideration they have shown us. We now feel that vie are 
prepared to face the future and assume our responsibili- 
ties among the leaders of tomorrow.

PROPHECY 

It Is now I960 and I see my old model plane operated by atomic 
power coming In to take me over the world to see the success of 
my classmates. I am now on my plane with Ethelene Sullivan ser- 
ving as Air Stewardess. It will not be long before I see other 
members of the Senior Class of ll +8. 



As we fly over Raleigh I see Ethel Walls, Supervisor of the 
Southern Bell Telephone System. Shirley Kirby is employed as 
secretary to a wealthy broker. Charles Ray Hare is in the State 
Insane Asylum he is superintendent. 

As we circle over our old home town, I find Carlton Bass, ath- 
letic coach of all athletes, in the million dollar Lucama High 
School gymnasium, and Welker Rouse, owner of the "Lucama" Hotel 
which accomodates four hundred guests. Dolores Kirby, a teach- 
er, wanted to teach in this school in order that she might get 
revenge on future classes for the roastings some of the members 
of the faculty gave her during her high school years. Gene Lamm 
surprised everyone by teaching Agriculture upon the retirement 
of Mr. McClenny. Our Edward Hales is a worthy doctor. He is an 
allopath, and while it 1 s said that all paths lead to the grave 
he doesn't lead them there very often. Darlene Ferrell is sat- 
isfied to rule as Mayor of Lucama. 

Rexford Pittman is part of the backbone of the country — for if 
good farmers are not the country's backbone "tell me what is. 
Then there's Edward Watson. He has prosperity written all over 
him: he not only has money in his pockets but in the bank as 
well. Yes, Edward is a plumber and can retire any time. 

In Rocky Mount, Ray Sullivan is a dentist whom people love be- 
cause he pulls teeth painlessly. Mary Olive Tedder had surprised 
everyone by settling down to married life. To Laurene Scott be- 
longs the distinction of being the class spinster not that she 

had no offers of marriage, but because no man measured up to her 
high ideals. 



!.■.»■« 



,/'.' 



It' s not so surprising that Muriel Lamm went in for civil re- 
form. She reformed her town, tackled the county, and then the 
state. Now she's in Washington telling things to congress. Doris 
Hooks is putting into practice her four years of Home Economics 
as a housewife. 



» 



Jenis Taylor, the inventor, will retire early firmly entrench- 
ed on Easy Street by the sale of his patent stepladder which is 
warranted never to kick up and throw an Innocent climber. Willis 
Holland is a well-to-do baker; he started in a humble way at 

home because his wife you know he married Frances Barnes, on 

whom he used to be sweet, wanted to be in business. She started 
a hat shop; Willis then had to get so many meals that he finally 
started a public bakery and is doing fine. 

Before returning, we fly over New York where we find Eva Kate 
Capps, who has refused many offers of marriage because she's in 
love with singing, is the star singer of the Metropolitan Opera 
Company.

SPORTS 

The Lucama girls and boys gave a wonderful fight 
this year in basketball. They all were good sports, 
but the boys were defeated in the county championship 
games. They still think they had a good team and are 
determined to win next year. They were county champ- 
ions in 19^7. The girls came next and won the county 
championship. This was the second time they have won 
that title and they hope to keep the title next year. 

The boys lost only two county games, including 
the tournament game. The girls lost about three games 
this year including practice games, l/e are very proud 
of our record in the basketball shorts Picture.
